Virtual Data Rooms: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – In the coming months, GIA will complete an extensive secondary and primary research program involving some of the industry’s leading players and experts. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing popularity of public cloud computing and the ensuing acceptance of virtual data room cloud services, growing cross border corporate transactions, and increasing M&A activity in industries with attractive profit margins and low structural risks. Free cash flow (FCF) rich industries with high entry barriers are typically prone to witness higher M&A activity and therefore represent lucrative markets for M&A services including virtual data rooms. Strong demand for virtual data rooms is expected to stem from companies operating in consolidating industries where massive volumes of M&A data and information will be generated during both pre-merger investigations and post-merger business valuations.
Defined as an online workspace where information related to M&A activity, investment bank and venture capital transactions are stored and distributed, Virtual Data Rooms (VDR) are growing in popularity and are rapidly replacing traditional physical data centre facilities. An efficient alternative to conventional physical data rooms, virtual data rooms enable faster and widespread distribution of documents and data, provide superior ability to sift through large volumes of data to quickly identify target data, and offer significant time and cost savings in reviewing M&A information. Conventional data rooms that house all the documents and data relating to companies or divisions being sold have inherent drawbacks such as standard location; need to transport the documents and key personnel back and forth. The resulting need to improve the overall efficiency and improve accessibility to information by geographically dispersed bidders is fueling demand for VDR Services. Virtual data rooms offer higher levels of security, enable speedy transactions, quick sharing of documents, impose controlled access to sensitive information and thereby help result in increased bid throughput and higher bid values.
Also driving growth is the expanding applications of VDR services to various other functions such as investor communications, fundraising, research & development, and supply chain secure document sharing among others. The study estimates Virtual Data Rooms to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modelled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
The report outlines the importance of VDR in driving M&A value maximization, and its increased adoption during the finalization stage of the M&A deal which involves more complex transactions as compared to the diligence process. Developed for VDR service providers, virtual data rooms (VDRs) users, and technology domain experts, among others, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space; key concerns in service provisions; offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
